Four broadcasts from September 11, 2001 from Democracy Now in New York City (from 9am to 1pm). The World Trade Center coverage starts approximately 3/4 of the way through the first broadcast.
Note: At 3:05 into the first hour of broadcast United Airlines Flight 175 can be heard crashing into the South Tower in the background of the recording.
Preservation Note: The fourth hour of broadcast cames from multiple sources including an audio cassette from WORT-FM and a Real Audio file. The audio cassette was the highest quality copy of that hour but includes satellite drop-outs. These drop-outs were filled in with audio from the lower quality Real Audio file.

I should be concerned because the BBC inacturately reported a building falling? Geez, come on. There is no conspiracy here. If anything, it was inevitable that #7 was going to fall. At best, it was a lucky (20 minute) guess by the BBC.

I listened to most of this broadcast this morning, and there is some really amazing footage here. Amy interrupts a taped interview to bring the breaking news and they continue to monitor the events of the day. One interesting aspect is the number of reports that turn out to be unfounded, such as a car bomb of the state department and explosions at the capitol. Most interesting are the live reports of multiple explosions happening after the planes hit the building. At one point Amy is reporting that three or possibly four planes hit the WTC to try to explain the explosions. Even after the towers fell witnesses and reporters continue to report explosions and what sound like bombs going off. It's also interesting that they note it appears that the towers just disintegrated as they fell. Amy also reports throughout the broadcast that a Palestinian group had taken responsibility for the Pentagon attack. These things were all lost, obviously, in the tragedy of the day, but five years later they allow for further investigation.
